This is one of my favorite horror films from master of horror Wes Craven. The movie come out on September 8, 2015 on Blu-ray disc from Scream factory. One of the best very underrated supernatural horror films. It is my second favorite Wes Craven film it is dear to my heart it is close to A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) the original film that I love to death it is my number 1 Wes Craven film, this is my second film. I love Shocker to death it is a movie I grew up with it.
This film come out in 1989 the same year that was A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child released and Shocker is Miles was better movie than The Dream Child in my opinion. Heather Langenkamp from A Nightmare on Elm Street 1, 3 and New Nightmare is in here as Pinker's first victim, she has a cameo scene I am glad. Heather and Wes collaborated the third time working together. Heather was excellent in here as Horace Pinker's first victim. Mitch Pileggi as Horace Pinker was a bad-ass slasher like Freddy Krueger from Elm Street series. I love his one liners, I love the acting performance from the actor Mitch Pileggi. He was excellent as Horace Pinker serial killer. Fantastic dream sequences creative made. The movie is well imaginative made. Peter Berg as Jonathan Parker as the hero was excellent I love him in this movie. Cami Cooper as Alison Clemens girlfriend of Jonathan Parker was excellent I like her performance In here. Wes Craven written and directed perfectly this movie. I miss Cami Cooper the actress also is not in the film business anymore, I miss the actress she was great as Alison Clemens.
The movie is about a serial killer in this town who dose several murders. He is a TV Service man Horace Pinker. There is this football kid Jonathan Parker in a collage. He has a dream in which he dreams that Horace kills his adoptive family. He finds out that the dream was true and his foster family is murdered. He finds out that his dream is connected to the killer and when he identified the killer by his Detective father Lt. Don Parker. Horace kills 4 cops and escapes and get's revenge on Jonathan when his identity was exposed and kills his girlfriend. Trough dream sequence Jonathan tracks him down and helps police to capture him. Horace goes on a eclectic chair, but before that Horace plays with black magic with electricity, he get's zapped on a electric chair and Horace Pinker transforms into terrifying energy source. He becomes a shape shifting demon who posses body's to get revenge on Jonathan Parker. Now Jonathan Parker, with an uncanny connection to Pinker trough bizarre dreams, can fight the powerful demon alone. The Two dive in and out of television programs, chasing each other from channel trough stunning scenes of disaster, game shows and old reruns.
This movie is pretty damn good I always enjoy this film I have it on Blu-ray I absolutely love the work from Wes Craven and Heather Langenkamp. Cami Cooper was a ghost as Alison in this movie she fight off Horace and helps Jonathan. This movie is unique and different from Nightmare On Elm Street. Shocker and A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge are very underrated 80's horror movie that I will always cherish and love. It has a good ideas that Wes Craven made, a very unique movie he made. Very entertaining it goes fast around. The whole possession thing he used was interesting twist on in with electrically current possessing people going in and out and TV's to the furniture. One point has the furniture eyes try's to hold Jonathan. It is very interesting creative film written and directed by Wes Craven. Michael Murphy was great as Lt. Don Parker I love him in this movie. Lindsay Parker as Little Girl, Dendrie Taylor as Young Mother and Kane Roberts as Road Worker were really good in the park when they cross path with Jonathan. I love this little girl trying to run over Jonathan. Or the co worker Kane Roberts is excellent.
I love the main song Shocker I love this song to death by The Dudes Of Wrath. I love love No More Mr. Nice Guy by Megadeth excellent song fantastic. Sword and Stone by Bonfire is another excellent song from Shocker. Different Breed by Dead On is another awesome song I love. I love the music score from William Goldstein. Shocker is underrated horror slasher film in my opinion it defines my childhood I love this movie.
